Mahalia Jackson, queen of gospel. Leading role in the black civil rights movement in the 1960s. We wrote about it before. They should make a movie about her life.
And doesn’t Mahalia Jackson just look a lot like Tina Turner? Seriously. Mahalia’s voice sometimes even sounds a bit like Tina Turner. Now what about that. It is just too much a coincidence, they should take advantage of: let Tina Turner play Mahalia Jackson.
Just look very closely at both performances. How much would it take, to change Tina into Mahalia? Sadly, the other casting option, Ms Marietje Herbrink, is no longer alive. So they can’t ask Herbrink. But they can ask Tina Turner.
